The Character of Hotel is Inside

27/08/2016 davidu2219, Sans Souci, Australia

Hotel building is very ordinary outside up a lane, however inside has character. Welcome very friendly, rooms are adequate, small lift for just 2 persons with bags, but that is all that you need. Limi... more


Hotel with more character than the name implies

02/08/2016 Christina L, Boston, Massachusetts

Dark and dingy rooms

Owner Response
BWCitadelle, Adjointe de Direction at BEST WESTERN Citadelle, responded to this review
The main building of the hotel Best Western of Besançon is a former convent. It has been completely renovated and restored on a contemporary industrial style. In two dependencies of the hotel (annex and Pavilion), the owners have created rooms. Also, all the rooms are different and there are also different categories. Our staff is present 24/24 and all the days of the year. They are always available to meet the needs of customers and strive to find solutions adapted to the preferences of each client. The team is sorry for your bad experience.
